“ARRIVAL” is another premise we have seen in the cinema many times but that doesn’t mean it won’t be able to deliver a compelling story. With Dennis Villenueve (Sicario) directing there is potential for an intriguing, multi-layered story that could engage viewers and fans of the genre.
The cast looks great; Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Forest Whitaker can all hold their own and it will be fun to see them create some chemistry together.
Yes this was a teaser trailer but with a November release and nothing really over-the-top in the way of action-sequences in this sneak peak, leads me to hope the story will focus on plot direction, and character development, not simply pure CGI gusto.
I am definitely looking forward to seeing what this film will deliver. Also if the writing is developed enough to weave a new twist into this tale we have seen many times, the result could be highly entertaining. It will be intriguing to see how Villenueve will portray an alien arrival on earth as well as how he creates his semi-apocalyptic result. I do hope this film will rely on pure science-fiction in its tone, and with Adams, Renner and Whitaker teaming up, the charisma and energy the characters may have in this movie, will be delivered with the needed impact.
Definitely looking forward to seeing the first full trailer for this movie on August 16th.
Release Date: 11 November 2016
